The 1.5°C threshold might be breached by 2025
Emission reduction alone is not enough. Carbon removal is a must.
“A livable planet now relies on removing up to a trillion tons of carbon already in our atmosphere.” - IPCC
TODAY’S CDR LANDSCAPE
Global CDR* Gap
* CDR = Carbon Dioxide Removal
THE GLOBAL CHALLENGE:
To rapidly scale the emerging climate restoration industry
Millions of tons of
certified CDR per year
Hundreds of millions of dollars invested
Hundreds of CDR companies & projects
WHAT’S NEEDED BY 2030
Billions of tons (gigatons) of certified CDR per year
Hundreds of billions of dollar invested
Tens of thousands of CDR companies & projects

What is Climate Restoration?
Climate Restoration is the climate change goal and associated actions to restore CO2 to levels humans have survived long-term, below 300 ppm. This would restore the Earth system generally to a safe state, for the well-being of future generations of humanity and nature.
Actions include carbon dioxide removal from the Carbon dioxide in Earth's atmosphere, which, in combination with emissions reductions, would reduce the level of CO2 in the atmosphere and thereby reduce the global warming produced by the greenhouse effect of an excess of CO2 over its pre-industrial level. Actions also include restoring pre-industrial atmospheric methane levels by accelerating natural methane oxidation.
Climate restoration enhances legacy climate goals (stabilizing earth's climate) to include ensuring the survival of humanity by restoring CO2 to levels of the last thousands of years that allowed agriculture and civilization to develop.

Can we restore the climate?
Yes, we can!
Our vision is a safe and healthy climate, defined as an atmospheric CO2e concentration of 300 ppm, by the year 2050.
To develop, by 2030, the capacity to remove tens of gigatons of CO2e from the atmosphere every year to offset global annual emissions (Net Zero) and sequester all historic emissions by 2050.
Restoring the climate is our top priority. Financial ROI comes second. Decisions are triple-bottom-line: environmental, social, and financial. Extra profits are reinvested to accelerate
